So, I need some ideas:
I love to send people cards or fun little gifts for their birthdays. One year (about a billion years ago, before the post office got all uppity about things being perfectly flat) I figured out that I could mail a little pad of post it notes to my friends for the price of a first class stamp. That year all of my friends got cute sticky note pads (with a Happy Birthday note on the front page) for their birthday instead of cards. I spent less than I would have for cards, and they got something cute and practical. Everyone seemed to like the twist.
Fast forward a lot of a couple years. I need something fun to send to kids for their birthdays. We have lots of long distance friends (a “bonus” of military life) and long distance cousins. Some of them we send gifts to; most we just send a card or some sort of little fun thing. This year it seems that I’m out of ideas. So what can we send all of our friends and cousins instead of cards??? FYI – most of the kids are in the 3 yo to 7 yo range. It needs to be something flat. It can be a cute homemade card idea or a tiny gift idea or anything that will be fun for kids to open on their birthdays.
Any ideas are appreciated!
